Aren’t launch edition and adventure optioned the same? I have
Do you have the Max Pack? I don't see how they can delivery any adventure package R1Ts in March that aren't max pack, because anyone who would have reserved early enough to get a March delivery would have chosen the Launch Edition...
This bill isn't set up right if people are giving up larger batteries to get a tax credit. With a larger pack people will be more inclined to take their R1T on long trips and leave their second ICE vehicle at home.
It would be best if you can exclude battery upgrades from the cutoff price for...
Configure the R1T the max pack and explorer package with a color upgrade. Then get your rebate and buy new wheels and accessories later from the adventure store.
Another thing: MSRP is what they're selling the vehicle for with options. I think gov't is likely to pay attention to a base price...
A model 3 and y has many many more places to charge than a Rivian right now and the charge rate in miles per hour of range added is much better. Going on a long trip a rivian will have less places to stop and charge, then spend much longer at those stops adding back that range.
I talked to the “battery expert” (and I don’t use quotations because I’m being an ass) who was fairly knowledgeable. He says the max pack version will have the same payload as large pack R1T with no mechanical differences in frame or suspension. Also said both packs are 400V and didn’t know for...
Has anyone heard from someone at Rivian when the max pack batteries are starting to get made? I know the configurator says after Jan 2022, but was wondering if there are any rumors of something more specific.
Sorry, my intent wasn’t to try to commit tax fraud and advertise it first. I was wonder since the irs doesn’t have a way to check, do they even care or ask?
Will the requirement to meet be <$80k msrp, but rather buying a certain model
Has anyone bought a car and got the existing $7,500 credit? How will Uncle Sam know if I optioned out my R1T over $80k? Do they check local sales tax records? Do they look at the window sticker? I have a feeling they’ll just pass anything that has an approved make and model.
I'm still confused by this statement. Will the DCFC be able to output over 200kW initially to an R1?
"300kW+ in the future" - is this spec mean an R1 will be able to charge 300kW in the future or some future vehicle we don't know about.
In California our state EV rebate is capped based on MSRP, but that MSRP is calculated from the base price of the model. I think the limit is $40k or something. So now I as long as there's some base version of a Tesla Model 3 that is under $40k, then all Model 3's are eligible for the rebate...
I think it's reasonable they can double production every month for the first six months or so:
